Fulton Science Academy Weekly Newsletter - March 30, 2017


Dear Friends, Family, and FSA Supporters:

I will keep it short this week as words cannot express the immense pride I feel for FSA as I reflect on yet another outstanding weekend of competitions and achievements.

For the first time in FSAPS history, three academic teams advanced to nationals during just one weekend. WOW!

Our amazing Science Olympiad Team advanced to Nationals this weekend and will now compete in Dayton, Ohio, May 20 – 22, 2017.

Our incredible Math Olympiad Team won First Place in State MathCounts today and will now advance to Nationals in Orlando, May 13 – 15, 2017.

And our wonderful high school students won First Place in State History Bowl (as a team) and advanced to Nationals where they will compete in Washington, DC, on April 21-23, 2017.

Earlier this month, our all-female Robotics Team, "Control + Alt + Delete" advanced to the International FLL Competition in the UK, June 21-25, and our Model United NationsTeam will be competing at the International United Nations Building in New York this May.

So far this year, a total of FIVE teams from our school have advanced to either national or international competitions and will represent the State of Georgia. We anticipate that some of our wonderful Destination Imagination teams also will advance to Global Finals after their competitions this weekend as well.

As you can imagine, this is simply amazing news for a school of our size! We are a small school with SUCH A BIG HEART! The stamina that our students, coaches, and families show on a weekly basis is such an inspiration to all who know them, especially to me. Way to go and good luck at nationals and internationals to all of our teams!

We are also incredibly excited to announce the addition of a brand new CurriculumEducation Coordinator, Kandice Ivarie, for our upcoming 2017-2018 school year. Mrs. Ivarie brings more than a decade of experience to FSAPS and we have no doubt she will help to support our school's long-term goal of being a top STEAM institution, not only in the US, but globally, as well!

We hope you will take time from your busy schedules to please read through our entire newsletter. So much is happening at FSAPS and we don't want you to miss a beat!
In response to your requests, new news is featured at the top, with the recurring news that is still relevant being included in the lower portion of the newsletter.

Here's to our incredible FSA family!
